Hair fall is a problem which freaks most of us out and can cause enough stress to result in more hair fall yet. But, what if we told you that the solution for this common woe is equally common and present in your kitchen? We are talking about onions. Yes, really.
Known to stimulate the scalp, this ingredient also increases follicular strength because it contains sulphur, helping make hair thick and strong.
Now, we know that applying a pungent-smelling juice like that of an onion’s on your head sounds gross. So, we’ve found some bottled versions which do the job minus the nasty odour. Want to stop all that hair fall? Keep reading.
1. Oriental Botanics Red Onion Hair Shampoo
Price: Rs 699 for 300 ml
Probably the best shampoo for hair fall, this is inarguably one of the most effective products out there to improve hair growth and thickness. Containing argan oil, olive oil, jojoba oil, a host of proteins, and amla, in addition to red onion oil, this is great for dry, damaged hair which is falling out due to chemical damage. Natural and herbal, this will keep your hair follicle fortified and smooth, too.
2. Jeva Onion Hair Oil For Hair Fall Dandruff Treatment
Price: Rs 500 for 200 ml
One of the biggest reasons behind hair fall and poor hair growth is an unhealthy scalp, especially one which is clogged and dandruff-prone. Often, oiling the hair and massaging the scalp can worsen this unless you use the right oil. An oil like this, which contains neem and Indian gooseberry (amla) oil, and no chemicals, helps keep the scalp purified and fresh.
3. MCaffeine Naked Detox Green Tea With Onion Oil Hair Growth Oil
Price: Rs 345 for 50 ml
There’s no better way to speed up hair growth than regular head massages because it stimulates blood circulation. When you use an oil like this which contains onion oil and caffeine, the blood flow in the scalp improves even more.
4. Oriental Botanics Red Onion Hair Oil
Price: Rs 999 for 200 ml
Despite being on the expensive side, this oil is quite miraculous, much like the shampoo from the same brand mentioned above. This is because in addition to red onion oil, it also contains a host of oils which are excellent for hair growth and protection–rosemary oil for scalp care, olive oil for moisture, castor oil for hair growth, almond oil for nourishment and speedy hair growth, and even bhringraj oil, which is another miracle worker for the hair.
5. Kaya Hair Naturals Scalp Detoxifying Tonic
Price: Rs 799 for 90 ml
A scalp treatment which smells like a fruity perfume, this concoction made from ginger and onion smells like anything but those two things. If you have a build up-prone scalp which is often tender and irritated, massaging this in will keep flakiness, itching, and boils at bay. Any hair fall happening due to these reason will reduce and your scalp will become healthy enough for proper hair growth.
